The Kansas City Chiefs made headlines last week by sending two draft picks to the New York Giants in exchange for wide receiver Kadarius Toney. 

Today, the Chiefs have reportedly added another receiver from the 2021 draft class to their roster. 

In a report sent out this afternoon by Tom Pelissero, Kansas City has officially signed former Bears' wide receiver Dazz Newsome to the team's practice squad. 

"The #Chiefs are signing former #Bears WR Dazz Newsome to their practice squad, per source," Pelissero tweeted Monday afternoon.

Newsome was a sixth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and spent last season with the Bears bouncing between the practice squad and active roster. 

He started one game for Chicago last year and played in two others, accumulating only two receptions for 23 yards while also handling six punt returns for the Bears in 2021. 

Newsome's best collegiate season came in 2019 when he tallied 72 receptions for over 1,000 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Tennessee Titans in Week 9.
